Group Rules

Montana Office of Tourism
Montana’s Official Group - Flickr - Rules


The Montana Office of Tourism (MTOT) maintains Montana’s Official Group ("the
Group") in order to provide a one-stop place for potential travelers to find inspiration
for their journeys to and within the state of Montana.This means that all photos in this
Group should be of people, places, or things directly connected to the state of Montana,

In addition, MTOT occasionally needs a photo that tells a certain type of story about
Montana for an advertisement or publication, and MTOT’s current collection of
photography does not meet that need. In those cases, MTOT may turn to photos
and users in this Group. Outside of the social media uses outlined below, MTOT
will never use a photo from this Group for promotional purposes without first getting
permission from its owner.


1. User Submissions

a. Types of Submissions Not Allowed

Still or motion images submitted to the Group ("Submissions") containing the following
depictions will not be allowed in the Group: pornographic materials, harassing
messages, defamation / libel materials / messages, spam / advertisements, materials

Submissions that were not taken within the State of Montana and do not contain some
subject bearing a direct connection to the State of Montana will not be allowed.

Submissions to the Group as it sees fit.

In plain English, the above means that you should only submit photos/video that
promote Montana. MTOT can remove Submissions that stray from that goal, and
MTOT can link to your Submissions on social media sites, including a thumbnail of the
image. It does not mean that MTOT can use your Submissions for print advertisements
